Dear Paula, I love, love, love this recipe. Thanks so much. I am so glad to see you coming back where you belong in the food world and we will have your magazine to enjoy. I just subscribed to it last week. I am looking so forward to receiving it. It was a pleasure to see it on the magazine stands. God tells us that revenge is His... He will take care of those who wronged you. Give it to Him in prayer I wish a wonderful, healthy, and Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.
